Thought I’d try something different this Friday: here are some of my “guilty pleasure” listening — you know, little oddities that fall outside of your normal listening habit. Typically I’m all about soundtrack, instrumental, progressive rock, and the like, but here are 10 tracks that I’ve found over time that have caught my fancy. I’ve included links to videos…
When Spookymilk announced plans to start a WGOM-only version of his Writer’s Challenge, I was (foolishly) all over that, and threw my name into the hat along with 20 other (foolish) folks. The competition (the seventh that he’s hosted) pits teams of “writers” against each other Survivor-style in a weekly challenge, each challenge with a different interesting requirement.
When the three teams of seven were randomly divided up, team names were needed, and running with a WGOM gamelog reference to a quote by WGOM regular brianS, I suggested “The Winner Group”, which ended up the de facto name.
Challenge #1 went out this week; I’ll post about it next Tuesday, along with my submission and results. I can’t wait to see how this goes!
Track of the Day: I’m dedicating this track to my fellow contestants in the other two Challenge groups — a great spoken-word track by Marc Jordan called “This is How Men Cry” and the following track “Charlie Parker Loves Me”
